6:02 am
in the west bank and mike is in jerusalem and what more do we know about the incident where a palestinian man was shot and killed? >> reporter: well, adrian as yet there has been no independent eyewitness verification of exactly what happened in the sequence of events and we have the statement from police that the man attacked four israeli border police at the gate of the entrance to the old city, they then fired on him, killing him. however, what is not known is whether any attempt to made to arrest him before he actually carried out the alleged attack and indeed if he was armed what was he armed with. details that may emerge with incoming hours, this was the second knife attack within the last 12 hours. overnight there was an attack in northern israel and significantly the attacker in this particular case was a palestinian israeli, the second attack in which a palestinian israeli has been involved in an

6:04 am
it's little marbles and the ground is littered with this and tell me in the afternoon and in a couple of hours they do expect and take precautions there will be renewed caution because as you mentioned a young teenager died during clashes near ramallah yesterday afternoon and a 13-year-old boy and received a rubber bullet if the back of his head. that funeral is supposed to start shortly after friday prayer and it's some sort of apprehension that sorry not friday prayer but noon prayer there is some sort of apprehension that after that the youth will go back to that flash point near the settlement and will be renewed clashes there. elsewhere in the occupied west bank we heard about some fighting not on a large scale and not very intense into karam

6:06 am
activists since june and attacked since people have been killed and the one that happened in july on the border with syria at least 30 people were killed in the attack and hundreds wounded and coming at a time when there are increasing political divisions and parliamentary divisions happening in a few weeks on november first and because of that the political divisions in this country really widing when the government is calling for unity and it's going to be hard to establish that unity especially for the akp ruling party in turkey and we expect that the cabinet will meet and will discuss the skron going investigation and try to determine who is behind these horrific attacks that happened and expecting a spokesperson for the government will be coming out with a statement once again calling for unity and all of this happening at a time when tensions are rising and the situation deteriorating and turkey is in multiple fights including against pkk and
6:07 am
against i.s.i.l. and a lot happening in turkey and a complex situation and doesn't look like it's going to get any easier any time soon. nato says that russia's support forci syria's support f bashar al-assad is talking about gaining territory with air strikes and shows a russian attack in idlib province and syrian troops say they have taken control of the area and meanwhile russia's president vladim vladimir putin met to discuss conflicts and says moscow is not planning to form an alliance with iran in syria. iran along with russia are the main syrian government's allies and russia says the bombing campaign is only targeting i.s.i.l. positions and reiterated his support for president bashar al-assad.

6:10 am
fight aisle and a democratic and secular syria where all the different groups can live side by side and they are also telling me that they're hope ing this alliance will be the nucleus of a new army in syria and i managed to speak to a high-ranking official in a democratically autonomous area and an area under control of kurdish administration, what he is saying is that this unification on the ground was necessary because of changing dynamics and he talked about the russian military intervention. what he also told me was that this new force has the backing of both the united states and russia and signs on the ground really indicate or lends credence to those claims and just a few days ago the u.s. said we are not going to train a rebel force to fight i.s.i.l. and provide groups who we have vetted on the ground and the u.s. has worked with these groups in the past. they have provided air cover to these groups when they have taken on i.s.i.l., the russians
6:11 am
were meetings a few days ago between russian officials as well as syrian and kurdish officials and heard the head of the syrian kurds we are ready to work with any group who wants to fight i.s.i.l. and the question is will this group be the nucleus of an army and who they will work with against i.s.i.l. and possibly be part of a new army because we have to remember russian officials keep talking about saying we are ready to work with fsa groups and we would lake to incorporate those groups in the army, it's too early to say but undoubtedly this is a significant development. >> dana is live in beirut. five nato military personnel have been killed in a helicopter crash in the afghan capitol kabul and two were british and five others injured when the aircraft went down at nato's headquarters and says the craft was an accident. a court in iran has convicted

u.s. reporter jason rezaian in an espionage case but it's unclear whether he has been sentenced and the washington post chief has been held more than 400 days on allegations of spying and always disputed the, the washington post that is, that rezaian is a spy. >> how jason's case will be handled is political authorities, not judicial ones and we heard from president rohani saying they will move it to conclusion if the united states will do something in return so i really think that the court process that has been going on for months and months and months in some ways is just the first act, that the final decision needs to be made by iran's highest authorities. >> al jazeera's kimberly has more now on the details of rezaian's case and the campaign to free him. >> reporter: for months his name has flashed outside the headquarters of the washington
6:13 am
post reminding passersby that for more than 400 days one of their own newspaper reporter jason rezaian has been held in captivity and says his time in prison has been difficult. >> jason has been isolated for much of the time in custody. he spent a lot of the months in solitary confinement and had really very little contact with the outside world. >> reporter: rezaian was arrested along with his journalist wife and to photo journalists in 2014 and all were eventually released except rezaian who was charged with espionage and charged in secret inside this tehran court and his family maintained rezaian has been incents. >> he loved iraq and so infectious he has a career of sharing the beauty with others. >> reporter: he was born in california and holds dual iran and united states citizenship and joined the washington post as it's correspondent in 2012
6:14 am
and worked for release and appealing to a human rights panel for help. at a black tie dinner in washington the president of the united states spoke about rezaian's imprisonment. >> jason has been in prison for writing about the hopes and fears of the people. >> reporter: eliminating the program that rezaian and others in iran said would be freed as part of the deal but the white house says the issues are separate and the agreement was signed without their release, and rezaian's time behind bars has been troubling for the washington post foreign editor and says the increasing trend of locking up journalists is alarming. >> we are used to the threat from armies and from wars. what we have seen in the last couple of years is just as troubling, the governments seem to be arresting and holding journalists for the crime of acting as journalists. >> reporter: paying a

6:16 am
a total of $500 million and moscow hiked the charges for ukraine following last year's moscow's leader yanukovich and talked about the east of the soviet nation and give us some background to this news, rory. >> reporter: well, it took weeks of negotiations, tri lateral negotiations with the gas and involving ukraine and involving the eu as well as a mediator to get to this stage. they were talking about what sort of price they would be charging and finally got to an agreement towards the end of september and now we have the gas flowing again so it's a combination of a long process really. ukraine is paying $230 per 1,000 cubic meters of gas and it's not a particularly bad deal for
6:17 am
ukraine and it's more than they wanted to pay and higher when the relations between moscow and kiev were much better but it's less than moscow charges the other long time european customers and it's also less than kiev was paying when gas was flown before in 2015 so things have not actually worked out too bad for kiev here. having said that though it's a sign of how poor ukraine is at the moment, how bad its finances are and it cannot actually afford to pay for it itself. the money going into the gas coffers which of course is a state-controlled company and therefore going to the russian state is coming from russian institutions in form of bailouts. >> rory what are the political implications of this and what does it mean for the war in the east of ukraine? >> well, russia of course has a
6:18 am
representation as a country and energy exporting country that uses energy as a political tool for pressure rising its customers, pressureing the neighbors and seems like the conflict is deescalating and seems like the rebels in the east and the government in kiev are finding more common ground, both of them are pulling their weapons back from the contact line in donbask. the conflict seems to be at least for the moment winding down a little bit. now many people predicted this would happen if moscow escalated its activity in syria which it is obviously doing and many people said if that happens then the conflict in eastern ukraine might die down a little and maybe we could have a look at the gas bill of being a feature of that particular landscape and can also look at it more of a
6:19 am
business deal with more business orientated eyes and say russia is a gas exporting country and needs to export gas and the other needs to import gas and therefore these two brokers and these two players would have to come to a deal like this at some point and they have been. >> rory challenge in moscow. egyptian media is reporting that the sons of the former president mubarak are to be released from prison after a court on sunday ruled they completed their three-year charges of embezzlement in a case known as the presidential palace case. you will remember the former president himself hosni-mubarak was convicted in the state and embezzled funds ear marked for the renovation of egypt's presidential palaces, more on that when we get it and the two

6:34 am
joins us now live from sidney and many people watching around the world will see australian policies as truly shocking and how on earth did it become consensus across the political spectrum, do you see it changing any time soon? >> well, it is a shocking situation. we have got two of the main political parties that have just decided it is political with an advantage to be seen and hashed on refugees and convergence of policies between the two parties and the only way you can get elected in australia and we disagree and at a time where public opinion has been a majority against policies we are seeing now with off-shore processing and at the moment we are starting to see a change in community opinion and once again opposing people settled on the

6:36 am
contradictions which at the end of the day i think will make the off shore processing arrangements completely unsustainable and do agree lot of damage to the people involve and asylum seekers and to the international reputation and it's racist and zenophobic, no doubt about that. >> reporter: cambodia did get $55 million in additional aid from australia which is now negotiating with the philippines as well to transfer asylum seekers there and only four people have been transferred and some have been on there for what two years? >> yes, i would say yes now, it's very clear that cambodia cannot resettle. it's a very poor country they have been able to bribe and coerce rights of asylum seekers
6:37 am
and that is the problem australia has got, international community recognizes the people in australia's responsibility and able to bribe and new guinea and cambodia and don't think it's the same for the others, you cannot buy rights. an officer who shot dead a 12-year-old boy carrying a toy gun acted within reason and see if charges should be in the case of tamir rice and allen fisher reports. >> reporter: a video shocked the u.s. and world, a 12-year-old playing in a park in cleveland, ohio playing with a toy gun and missing the orange cap which would indicate it's a toy and a man is scared and the man sitting in the background called police and said the gun was probably fake. >> it's probably fake but do you know what it's scary. >> reporter: that wasn't passed

6:39 am
as was his response to that perceived threat and former f.b.i. agent kimberly crawford said not only was the officer required to make a split-second decision but the response was a reasonable one and could not say the weapon was anything but a real handgun and they say the reports are part of a white wash and grand jury in cleveland will decide if the police officers involved are to be charged, allen fisher, al jazeera. bolivia president has called for a conference on climate change ahead of a u.n. summit in paris in december. in his country the city people fear their voices won't be heard at the confwrens, many still don't have access to running water as daniel reports. >> she wants clean running water so she doesn't have to climb to this tank every morning or pay $6 she can't afford to fill it
